Haunted Duke’s Daughter C64
When I looked at Tina, she was also sipping her tea. Apparently, I was able to divert the conversation. It was only a stopgap measure, but it was better than being in a foul mood in front of Lilia. Rather than that, the rest was a matter for the prince. I’ve already fulfilled my promise, so I’ll just have to do my best.
Speaking of which, I remembered that I had received an invitation to an evening party hosted by the royal family, but I wondered how Tina had fared. I’d like to think that the prince didn’t make the same mistake, as expected, but I decided to ask her just in case.
“Tina. There’s a soiree tomorrow. You didn’t get an invitation, did you?”
Tina looked away. The moment she saw this, the corner of Lilia’s eyebrows lifted.
“Did you get it?”
“Um ……! People go to…….”
S–You almost called her stupid.
L–What the hell was that idiot thinking?
S–Hmmm……….I don’t know.
Doesn’t he understand how much trouble Tina will be in? Lilia desperately suppressed the feeling of being overwhelmed with anger and took a slow deep breath at Sakura’s urging. As she did this once, twice, three times, she began to feel a little calmer. When she had calmed down to some extent, Lilia tapped her finger on the table.
“Yes, yes! What is it?”
“Hmm…….? Why are you so nervous?”
When I tilted my head and asked her, Tina pulled her cheeks together and looked away. From her reaction, I might have done something to her, but I couldn’t think of anything. As I was thinking that, Sakura told me while holding back her laughter.
S–Lilia. You look so scary. Tina’s going to be scared.
L–Oh…….I’ll be careful.
I thought I had calmed down, but apparently I hadn’t been able to hide my expression. Feeling a little remorseful, I smiled at Tina, but she still looked worried.
“I’m sorry. Tina, could you do me a favor?”
“Can you bring me the invitation? I’m going to have a little talk with His Highness.”
Tina seemed hesitant, but she must have realized that Lilia was not going to back down, because she nodded obediently and left the room.
After a short wait, Tina returned with the invitation.
“Thank you. You can go back to your room now. You don’t have to attend tomorrow’s soiree.”
When she said this, Tina smiled, though her eyebrows remained lowered.
“Yeah……I’m sorry, Lilia. I just couldn’t say no…….”
“Don’t worry about it. Have a safe trip back.”
Tina finally said, “Take it easy,” with a worried look, and left the room. I watched her go and sat in my chair for a while longer, drinking my tea, then slowly exhaled and stood up.
L–Now, let’s go…….
Sakura replied very happily. However, I could see that her voice was trembling slightly, probably from anger. It seems that Sakura has something on her mind. Hearing Sakura’s voice like that, Lilia’s anger was rekindled.
Lilia slowly made her way to the door. On the way, she turned to see if Alisa had tried to call her off, and for some reason she froze. Then Lilia left the room without being disturbed by anyone.
Normally, it would be polite to ask someone to inform the prince of her visit, but she didn’t care about that. Lilia walked down the hallway with a smile on her face.
She passed a few people on the way, but as soon as they saw Lilia, they all took a big step away from her and stood upright, until she passed by.
They didn’t want to have anything to do with Lilia now, not even the smallest thing. Sakura could tell, and she seemed to be struggling to hold back her laughter.
After a short walk, I reached the prince’s room. Perhaps because of his position, there were two soldiers by the door of the room, keeping an eye on the surroundings.
“Oh, it’s you, Liliane.”
The soldier made a surprising sound. He must have thought it was unusual since she rarely came to this place now.
Lilia smiled at the soldier.
“I’d like to see His Highness, can you arrange for me?”
The soldier gulped briefly and immediately bowed his head reverently. I was a little uncomfortable with his reaction, as if he had seen a demon, but the soldier knocked on the door honestly, which was good.
S–No, an evil demon is still prettier than you.
Sakura muttered, and just as Lilia was about to complain about it, the door was opened.
A woman in a maid’s uniform appeared. She looked at the soldier, then at Lilia, and her eyes widened in astonishment. I smiled and turned to her, wondering what she was so surprised about, and she shut the door vigorously.
An awkward silence flows. The mask of Lilia’s smile fell off, and the two soldiers who saw it took an involuntary step back.
A voice leaked out of Lilia’s mouth.
Keep your face expressionless.
Lilia tried to touch the door of the room.
“I’m sorry, my servant was rude…….Oh!”
The prince looked up, saw Lilia’s expression and took a big step back.
